What is Italian Leather?

Premium Italian leather (of the full-grain, vegetable-tanned variety) possesses a distinct set of characteristics. It has a rich, earthy and woody scent, one that you probably associate with leather. 

High-quality Italian leather often exhibits warm tones that intensify over time. Because the leather is permeable, it gradually absorbs different elements — like water and dirt — when it comes into contact with them. Over time, Italian leather goods will develop a unique patina and is supple and flexible. As well, each piece of full-grain leather has a unique and natural appearance. 

Italian leather is a great option for producing everyday items that can withstand frequent use and poor weather. Hektor + Helena bags are designed for those who live hard, and due to their superior quality, the look and feel continues to develop over time.
